VVe will not dis guise the fact that we are a con quered peoplp, but' as becomes truth and manliness to acfenowlege that such is our unhappy condition. You are our conquerors, and as such have the right to dispose of us according tQ the dictates of your otfn will. In'aoing this we beg of you to remefftber that whatever may be our faults and follies n^w, there was a time wheu you needed a leader in war aud a statesman in government, and Virginia gave you a Washington. There was a time when ours was the governing section of the United States, and no wrong during all that time was committed on the constitutional rights of the North, either by the Government or by tbe people of the South. Can the North say as much ?— There was a time when the North appealed to the liberality of tlie South, as it regarded a division of the dominion won by the common sacrifices of the revolution, and Virginia gave up that vast territory lying beyond the Ohio, whose teem ing population has in no slight de gree contributed to our overthrow and ruin. And Greorgia, for a trifle, gave up her territory, composing the States of Alabama and Missis sippi. And above all, we bog of you to remember what our own great hearted Marion said when urged to a course of confiscation and ruin oa the tories of the revolution. He said : "It was war then, it is peace now. God has given us the victory and we can never show our grati tude to Heaven by cruelty to man." Let but this Godlike, generous sen timent; let but these pleasant mem ories control and govern your pro ceedings toward us, aud we pledge ourselves to do all we cau to wipe out the unhappy memories of the past four years, and to stand shoul der to shoulder with you in uphold ing the flag of the Union, the stars and stripes, and in making it the emblem of truth, of justice and of right, wherever it may float, on every land and every sea. 8®» The late editors of the Anti Slavery Standard aocused Wendell Philiips of morbid egotism and dis eased vanity. They ought to know his case. OBEISANCE TO THE PUBLIC# TRÏ- WEEKLY GAZETTE AND COMET. Tims was when this old and well-known journal catered daily for the edification and entertainment of ils hosts of readers and patrons. But, times change and things change with them. The advent of War, followed, alas ! by so many Bad and startling changes in the condition and pursuits of the Southern people, rendered it necessary to drop the daily publication and assume instead a simple weekly issue. The War terminating, and the dawn of a more quiet and prosperous future appear ing, afford now encouraging earnest of a gradual thongh sure return to the arts and pursuits of peace, on the part of our people. Embracing the occasion, therefore, to fall in and keep pace with the steady pro gress affairs of our common country, the «nder eigned have formed a mutuel association for the purpose of carrying on the news paper, job printing and bindery business of the (Jazette and Comet iffice. towards a brighter condition in the n r f to a th„ da-etu and Dating from o-daj, the Ga.etu and ^ emerges from a weekly to c tn weekly journal. To meet the enlarged expenses consequent upon this alteration, we confidently rely upotr a generous in crease of patronage. This we shall strive to merit by ihe labor and attention which we intend devoting to the several depart ments of business we have undertaken mutually to conduct, comprising as above stated, the newspaper and job offices and bindery. As soon as practicable, the Gazette and Comet will be issued daily.. ,T. C. CfJABaofri, T.îî. R-. Witch, Qi A, PJK. T ue. L oss of M en .—It seems to be the general impression that the losses sustained by the, armies of the republic in the late civil war reached somewhere near a million lives, and we. find this number in the English journals frequently given as though it were an established fact. It may be as well, therefore, to state that official returns in the War Depart ment show that the deaths in the army since the war broke out, so far as heard from, with the estimates made from those returns not' yet handed in, including the starved prisoners, etc., will reach an aggre gate of three hundred and twenty thousand men. When wo take into consideration the immense numbers of men we have pût in the' field, the duration of the war, the terrible marches incident to operations over so vast a stretch of country, the great number of battles, sieges, com bats, skirmishes, expeditions, etc, this mortality is by no means large. The official estimate is that, in time of peace the ordinary mortality for the number of uien in the field would be forty thousand, which, de ducted from the above total, would leave the extraordinary mortality 285,000. Many persons reach far larger figures than these by taking newspaper reports of battles, etc., and making Joose estimates where they find no regular data. The war has been sanguinary, it is true, but not nearly so much so as has been supposed both in Europe and America ; and now that it is over, and the facts can be examined dis passionately, we may express our gratification to find that our losses fall so far below the general estimates. It affords proof that oùr generals have been much more skillful, seien* title and humane than they have re» ceived credit for being, and thpt their skill has won success for us at far less cost of life than might have been looked for. This-is one of the chief studies of the scient ific soldiér, and we cannot afford to ueglect, therefore, the proper examination of such data as the above. These three hundred and twenty thousand men are subtracted from the fighting material of the nation. Another estimate we have spen in print makes the dead and perma nently disabled on both sides during the war about six hundred thousaiid' men. We presume that, in estimating properly the effect of the war upon the republic, we should include all losses, north and south, âs so much taken from the resources of the na tion. So viewing them, while w<j must deplore the sacrifice of such a vast multitude at the shrine of war, ( yet the Iqss is not so great as to crip ple us. The nation is very far from' being exhausted after this struggle, prodigious atf lit has been. Secretary Cameron proposed to ob tain arms enough for the whole four millions of our fighting population, he did not look forward to such a war as we have had, though he pro vided for it. Yet out of that four millions we have not lost so many but that those we have left are still a powerful array, adequate to any emergency, however great. Still it must be evident that we need time to recover from this drain of our vital element. The peace which we have conquered is too Val uable to be lightly sacrificed, and hence We ueglect no opportuuity of reminding our readers that just at present we are scarcely in trim to pjay the part of knight-errant all over the world. War is not the nor mal condition of our race, as some persons seem to imagine. Nor can any nation, however great, afford to engage in many and rapidly /V hen succeeding wars without exhaust b iug that ; - <vj. . t - .r • i u . ° T ' ^ can only be recuperatedbfa lasting | peace. Foreign immigration sup plies this native element in the sec Held peasantry, a nation 's pride, When once destroyed can never be supplied. It is the native element of our population which has been most ond generation, but this process is a slow one.— Phil. North American. Connecticut Tkoops .—Adjt. Gen. Morse, of Connecticut has just made a report on the number of men foi-] nished by that State for the war.— The total quotas were 47,622, and the State has furnished 54,468 men, including nine months enlistments and re-enlistments. Reducing the whole to the standard of three years there liatfe been furnished 4T,5t2 men.
